Eagle Ranch Founder to Lead Vision for the Future

Eddie Staub to Establish Community Counseling and Non-Profit Mentoring Center

Flowery Branch, Ga., March 9, 2020 – As Eagle Ranch moves forward on its plans to establish a community counseling and non-profit mentoring center, Eddie Staub, the organization’s Founder and Executive Director, will lead the charge.

Staub will move out of his role as Executive Director in early 2021 and will lead the initiative under his role as Founder of Eagle Ranch.

The Eagle Ranch Board of Directors has engaged an executive search consultant with expertise in recruitment for high-level non-profit positions. Staub is expected to transition out of his role in day-to-day operations as Executive Director in the first quarter of 2021.

“This plan enables us to make a smooth leadership transition while setting the course for the Ranch’s future,” said Craig Barrs, Chairman of Eagle Ranch’s Board of Directors and retired Executive Vice President for Georgia Power Company. “Transitions can be challenging, and the Board has worked closely with Eddie over the last five years to put this plan in place and ensure it is as seamless as possible. Eddie will always be the Founder of Eagle Ranch. His guidance will continue as we enter into this new season.”

Staub will oversee establishment of The James W. Webb Wings Center through its planning, construction and initial operation. Additionally, he will continue consulting with new and existing children’s programs and non-profit organizations.

“This is a natural progression of my role at Eagle Ranch. I will help the new Executive Director get established while laying the groundwork for our expanded vision,” noted Staub. “I will continue serving the Ranch for many years to come and welcome new leadership that will bring fresh ideas to keep moving the Ranch forward.”

James W. Webb Wings Center to Break Ground Late Spring

The James W. Webb Wings Center will be located on Eagle Ranch’s campus on Union Church Road in Flowery Branch. The first services to be offered in the new center, include:

  • Outpatient counseling services for children and families in the surrounding community
  • Mentoring and support for new and existing children’s programs and non-profits that benefit children and families

The new center will increase Eagle Ranch’s reach and impact within the North Georgia and metro Atlanta community by offering children and families more resources for crisis counseling.

“The Wings Center will expand the continuum of services we have provided in our community for nearly 35 years,” said Staub. “We have a substantial number of families calling us for help whose needs are outside the scope of residential care. We will soon be able to provide help for these families.”

Future plans include marriage and parenting retreats, as well as other services that complement the Ranch’s mission.
